While we’re waiting for more episodes of The Comeback featuring Valerie Cherish and Lindsay Lohan, Lisa Kudrow has lined up a new TV comedy role at Amazon alongside Greg Kinnear. The streaming network announced that Kudrow and Kinnear will co-star in a pilot in the works called Good People alongside Whitney Cummings, who co-created the series with Empire’s Lee Daniels, and Martin Short.
The show centers on three generations of women who work in the ombudsman’s office of a college who “navigate the current cultural climate, the concept of feminism across different generations, and the struggle to reconcile socially constructed ideas with current ethical views regarding complex issues such as sex, race, class, and gender.” Kudrow will star as university ombudsman Lynn Steele, “a tired, mercurial force of nature who finds herself being seen as out of touch by millennials, even though she has been a champion of women her entire career.” Kinnear, meanwhile, will play Dr. Paul Keating, an “incredibly charismatic” philosophy professor who causes problems for Kudrow and Cummings’s characters thanks to his “unorthodox methods of teaching and refusal to acquiesce to ‘PC’ rules.” Short is the college dean, whose “casual sexism causes constant problems for the ombudsmans office.”
In addition to starring, Kudrow is also executive producing alongside Cummings and Daniels; Daniels will also direct the pilot. Yes please!
